MPs have demanded the immediate recall of Parliament following a landmark ruling by Scotland's highest civil court. The Court of Session in Edinburgh ruled that the UK Prime Minister's decision to suspend the Westminster Parliament for 5 weeks was unlawful.
They said they were unanimous in their belief that Boris Johnson had been motivated by the 'improper purpose of stymying Parliament'.
The case now goes to the UK Supreme Court next week. Downing Street said it was disappointed by the ruling and that the prorogation of Parliament had been 'legal and necessary'.
We also report on the government’s publication of no-deal Brexit planning documents, the Labour Party’s Brexit divisions and the latest Brexit Party rally.
Presented by Huw Edwards at Westminster with reports by Laura Kuenssberg, Clive Coleman, Sarah Smith, John Pienaar, Alex Forsyth and Faisal Islam.
